This week has been a bit of a blur, so completely packed with activity – but one that has left me with a full heart. On Tuesday and Wednesday, after weeks of grueling work, our amazing RMS Symphonic Band earned an overall superior rating at State Music Performance Assessment, alongside their also amazing older counterparts, the Southside High School Symphonic Band. We are all especially elated for Mr. Weaver and the Southside High School Wind Ensemble for earning straight superiors Wednesday night, setting an outstanding precedent for our middle schoolers to follow. Thank you, students, for all of the unbelievable amount of time and effort you have invested in making our bands so successful! Your music is a reflection of your hearts.
On Friday and Saturday, Adam Parton, Jose Arquitola, Kennedy Carter, and Hayden Davis represented the RMS Band at District 2 Honor Band, putting together a wonderful concert in only about 8 hours of rehearsal. These students truly reflect the kind of excellence in both musicianship and character to which our motto, “Where the Pride Begins” refers. Congratulations, you guys, and thank you for representing us so well.
With a sleepy but satisfied smile on my face,
